I took my 2012 Ram 2500 Hemi in for the recall work on the front end in February. I drove about 600 miles to visit my sons and I swear I could feel something through the steering wheel, like...

My 4.7 did 17 to 20 mpg on regular gas and 10 to 12 mpg when towing. But the engine sounded like it was going to blow up when towing on the hills so I couldn't run the A/C.

The computer says about 14 mpg combined on premium gas. When I tow I get about 8 mpg. Like I said we live where it's very hilly and mountains too.

Have 2500. Will trade to 1500 be worth it?

I bought a 2500 with the Hemi engine to pull my 18 ft travel trailer here in the mountains of Wyoming because my previous Ram 1500 with the 4.7l just couldn't pull effectively. Now I have a truck...

I drive 78 mph on the highway and use 91 octane. I haven't paid attention to idling. I was reading the mpg forum and I am surprised that 1500 guys don't get much better mpg than my 2500 Hemi. ...
